He was born and raised in Charleston in a pious Christian family.

As shown in various teasers and promos for this season, he is expected to bring some drama to Southern Hospitality. Despite the fact that he has worked with the organization for a long time, Mikel may irritate his employer. Only time will tell whether he can make it through the season.

Mikel thinks he has “two lives.”
